Woman who was raped as a child by grooming gang reveals how police accused her of being a 'child prostitute' and threatened to take her children away (4 Pics)

A ROTHERHAM sex abuse victim has slammed cops who she says accused her of being a "child prostitute" and for threatening to take her kids away.
Sammy Woodhouse was just 14 in 1999 when she was groomed, raped and fell pregnant to 25-year-old paedo ringleader Arshid “Ash” Hussain.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, she claims how, when she finally opened up to police about the grooming, they told her she originally would have been seen as a "lovesick teenager ".
And speaking about a 2001 report into the abuse, Sammy said: "Chillingly, I learned I was named as one of 10 victims – or 'child prostitutes’ as we were still called then."
Hussain was part of a paedophile gang, who along with many others groups in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, abused over 1,000 kids between 1997 and 2013.
After picking Sammy up at local shops one night, the “dangerous criminal” told her he had spent time in jail and had stolen cars.

and Bannaras , known as Bash and Bono, were all involved in the grooming gang

Infatuated with Hussain, the schoolgirl started seeing the British Pakistani man nearly every day and soon began a sexual relationship with her violent and sadistic abuser.
After a month they were having sex daily. Twice he got her pregnant, the first time she had an abortion, but when she was 15 she gave birth to a baby boy named James.
Hussain also persuaded Sammy to break the law - including taking part in an armed post office robbery, she claims.
Her distraught parents had asked for Sammy to be taken into care to keep her away from Hussain.
Yet social workers allowed him to keep meeting the vulnerable teen, even though they knew he had been in prison.

After speaking out about the abuse she suffered, Sammy claims social services threatened to take her two children away and put them on a "protection order".
She said: "[Social services] had failed to protect me for years, yet now I was naming and shaming them in the media, they wanted to protect my children.
"It felt like I was being blackmailed to stop campaigning. I considered stopping, but realised it was the very last thing I should do."
Determined Sammy carried on her crusade for justice and finally saw Hussain put behind bars for 25 years in December 2015.
She is now hoping to stop any other children from being sexually exploited after she suffered with "major depression, disengagement and emotional detachment issues" and an eating disorder.
In February 2016, following a high profile court case into the Rotherham sex scandal, Arshid Hussain, 41, was jailed for 35 years for 23 offences, which included rape and indecent assault.
Among his nine victims was an 11-year-old girl.
